October 14, 2016 at Irving Street Projects in San Francisco.
Cloutier’s sculptures evoke both an ancient and modernist aesthetic and technique. Her works highlight the natural beauty of the dense, rock-like nature of her material when it is fired to its maturation temperature, through a process that historically dates back thousands of years. For this project Cloutier has developed a specific language of wheel-thrown shapes and characters according to the naturally occurring variance of color and texture of the clay. A series of limited edition prints made in collaboration with The Aesthetic Union will accompany the exhibition.
Hope to see you there!
